Elle (Canada) - - Radar -

While Dubai has long been con­sid­ered a glam­orous and ex­otic des­ti­na­tion, it has never been known as a fash­ion hub. As the lo­cal art and ar­chi­tec­ture scenes ma­ture­— the open­ing of the Dubai De­sign District last spring cre­ated an of­fi­cial nu­cleus for the up-and-com­ing cre­ative class—a new gen­er­a­tion of Mid­dle Eastern fash­ion de­sign­ers is tak­ing root. La­bels to re­mem­ber are Fatema Far­dan, House of No­mad and Taller Marmo, a fi­nal­ist along­side Tanya Tay­lor at this year’s

International Wool­mark Prize in New York.
